During the first half of December twice some parts of Greece where under the mercy of gale strong winds and low temperatures. Loutsa, the most famous windsurf spot near Athens, saw winds that exceeded 50knots. It was a couple of days with more than hardcore action, nasty bailouts that were finally marked by the worst possible scenario when a 44 years old windsurfer, Nikos Letsios, tragically lost his life.
